 Twitter Will Soon Allow Users To Turn On A Setting That Blocks Offensive Comments – Elon Musk

Tuesday saw the billionaire Elon Musk propose a feature for Twitter that would let users establish preferences restricting what they view on the site and filter harmful content.

At the Qatar Economic Forum, Elon Musk, who is scheduled to pay $44 billion for Twitter, claimed that this would be a step toward making Twitter an “appealing system to use.”

He argued that Twitter should let users express themselves freely within the “boundaries of the law,” but then restrict who can see their remarks depending on the preferences of other users.

“You’ll receive that if your preferences are to see or read anything,” he added. However, if your preferences are that you don’t want to view remarks that you find offensive in any way, you can select it as a setting and not see it.

The Tesla CEO said he still believes that Twitter should be as inclusive as possible but said there’s a “big difference between freedom of speech and freedom of reach.”

“In that, one can obviously, let’s say in the United States, go in the middle of Times Square and pretty much yell anything you want,” he said. “You’ll annoy the people around you, but you’re kind of allowed to just yell whatever you want in a public place, more or less.”

“But then whatever you say, however controversial, does not need to then be broadcasted to the whole country,” he said.

Musk has previously mentioned his desire to filter out offensive and boring content on social media. At his first all-hands meeting with Twitter employees, he said he plans on “not showing people content that they would find offensive.”

Twitter has not publicly revealed a blanket feature like the one Musk proposed. However, it allows users to block or filter out notifications from specific accounts or content the platform flags as duplicate or automated tweets.

Additionally, the platform allows users to “mute” certain words so they won’t be shown posts containing those terms.

Musk said on Tuesday that his goal is to “entice most people to want to be on Twitter” because they find its content informative, entertaining, and useful.

According to him, an ideal userbase would include 80% of North America and “half of the world.”

The billionaire has repeatedly said he disagrees with Twitter’s practice of banning users that violate its policies, which currently prohibit people from promoting violence, extremism, adult content, and publishing someone else’s private information, among other offenses.
